Melody Besner’s words: (Julia’s Mom)
Julia passed away suddenly, in her sleep, last year, April 2015. It gives us peace to know that during the past six years of her life, she was the healthiest, strongest, most vibrant and the happiest ever! Her official cause of death on her death certificate was Lyme Disease. Continue Reading Here
Here is Julia’s Lyme Journey in her own words.
“I started to develop very strange symptoms. I began having panic attacks before going into ny class. My kidneys were throbbing. I could feel my stomach aching from my back, and my eet began to vibrate every morning. Such random and strange symptoms that my family thought I was making it up to skip classes, but I loved school!
I ended up needing to move back into my parents’ house and then they finally grasped how sick I actually was. I was having chronic fatigue, muscle spasms, migraine headaches, severe pain in the back of my neck, severe reproductive organ pain, vertigo, nausea, cognitive issues, insomnia, panic attacks, hot and cold flashes, and other “brain and gut problems.” After seeing so many doctors that I lost count, the main consensus was it was all in my head, that I was making this up, and there must be some psychological reason behind these crazy manifestations. But my mother knew me better.
I loved school, and I loved having a social life. I went from being a social butterfly to not being able to get out of bed for weeks. Luckily my family refused to give up on me. After hours upon hours of research and contacts, a pelvic pain specialist in California randomly said, “Have her tested for Lyme disease; a lot of my patients that present like this end up testing positive.”
Sure enough, I tested highly positive on an IGG & IGM test, even according to CDC standards. Then, the next challenge…finding a doctor that knew how to treat chronic Lyme, and would treat me, as it presented a risk of being targeted by the government. Even the most prestigious doctors and hospitals in the country said there was nothing they could do for me.
My family would not accept this! I never thought I’d be traveling the globe to go and sit in doctors’ offices or lay in hospital beds. I did two solid years of IV antibiotics through a PICC line with my symptoms just getting worse and worse. I also had a closet full of prescriptions and bags of meds by my bed, and I was still bed ridden. This just killed my family. I was back to needing my parents help to do almost everything. Things had gotten so severe that when coming off of IV antibiotics and onto orals and injectable penicillin I started having seizures.
I couldn’t drive, couldn’t sleep, and couldn’t eat. I lost all of my friends and definitely lost anything remotely close to a normal life. It was very depressing, to say the least! I was so consumed by pain that I couldn’t see outside the box, but my father could. He knew that all these antibiotics, pain medicines, muscle relaxers, antivirals, etc. were all making my body highly toxic. I’d never get better if I didn’t change my treatment philosophy and do something to detox.
That’s when he started his quest to find natural ways to detox and help with pain. He traveled all the way to China, just for me. It turned out, he was a genius. He discovered that infrared energy offers numerous health benefits along with pain relief and detox. He invented products to harness infrared heat, generate negative ions, and shield harmful EMFs, all in comfortable heating pads to use on areas of the body that are in pain. He also developed a portable, affordable infrared sauna to detox, kill parasites and bacteria, and suppress viral loads, while enhancing the immune system. I began to use infrared and slowly stopped all prescription medications.” Keep Reading Julia Story Here (Scroll part way down the page until you see Julia’s picture and story.
